No! Every landscaping company must abide with Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) laws making sure that every employer is responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. This is important because any homeowner that decides to hire a contractor that is not covered properly will immediately be responsible for any damages that do occur on their own home but also for any employees that is working on their property. In fact, any contractor that is not covered properly and gets injured at the homeowner’s property can be responsible for that employee’s medical bills and to include a possible lawsuit.
In 2012 there was an unlicensed “tree trimmer” working in Miramar, he passed away when he was electrocuted while trimming a homeowner tree.
Protect yourself, your property and ensure that you will be covered. Most homeowner policies require that any work performed on your property be accomplished by properly licensed contractors. Beware of the “low ballers” those are usually the ones that mean, “You take on the risk!”
